Embark on a captivating journey through Belize’s lush landscapes with the captivating Monkey River and Manatee Watching tour. Named after the indigenous black howler monkeys that thrive along its banks, the Monkey River promises an experience like no other.

Throughout your expedition, you’ll encounter a diverse array of Belizean wildlife.

A delectable lunch in the quaint Monkey River Village adds a local touch, allowing you to savor both the flavors and the atmosphere.

The tour’s richness extends to a brief bush expedition, where you’ll delve into the intricate ecosystem of Belize’s flora and fauna. Gain insights into the delicate balance that sustains this lush environment as you explore the vibrant surroundings.

The Monkey River Tour promises an abundance of remarkable wildlife encounters, ensuring an experience that delights the entire family and awakens your inner explorer. Within this tropical haven, a tapestry of life unfolds—crocodiles, iguanas, an orchestra of birds, turtles, howler monkeys, and even elusive jaguars coexist harmoniously.
